I guess we can take Solly's off our list

7 injured when cab hits nightclub

WASHINGTON, Feb. 7 (UPI) -- Seven people were hospitalized Saturday morning after a taxicab crashed into a Washington bar, authorities said.

Police told the Washington Post that none of the injuries at Solly's U Street Tavern appeared to be life threatening. The driver of the cab was reportedly one of those who were injured, the newspaper said.

After the cab hit the club, "the wheels were still turning, so the place was filling up with smoke," an employee said, adding, "we got everybody out pretty fast."

The cause of the 12:15 a.m. crash was not immediately known, the Post said.
